    Hi, I have a question and I'm new to every thing.
    I just bought the Nook Color, and intend to update to Froyo 2.2 from B&N's upgrade 1.2. Do I have to root it before I'm able to overclock it to 1.1GHz ?? Thanks for helping.

    Yes. Unfortunately at this point in time, there isn't a solid root process out for 1.2 yet. There *is* a root hack out, but they are still working the bugs and getting things ready. My recommendation would be to either roll to 1.2 and enjoy, or go through the process to get 1.1 rooted, and then make sure you kill the OTA update capability.

    THANKS to mjbelknap. I greatly appreciate your input. I spent many hours searching for answer at different websites til now ... :-)) . Taking your advise, I would give NC with Froyo a try, hope that the pinch-zoom & the page flip functions are responsive and smooth enough when I read the PDF or MSWord files. These are the very important features to me.
    THANKS again.

    No problem. I'm sitting here chomping at the bit to get after 1.2! But the stuff I've downloaded and the way I've set-up my rooted 1.1 are keeping me at bay for now... Can't wait for the stable root!

    It's probably a stupid question, but will the Froyo kernal work on my rooted 1.2? I assume so, but wanted to make sure.

    Will,

    Thank you for this Root process! This worked (almost) flawlessly! This should keep me until my Asus Transformer comes...I hope....

    Thanks again!

    Noob question, what is the benifit of overclocking the nook because I read that some people don't like to overclock it. Also if I installed CM7 on a SD card, but my nook is still stock, which version should I use?

    Curious as to how far you've gone with overclocking. CM7 lets you overclock to 1100. I downloaded Nook Tweaks, which lets you go beyond.

    I've overclocked successfully to 1350 with Nook Tweaks with no issues. Unless CM7 isn't allowing Nook Tweaks to change the overclock.

    Curious if people have gone beyond 1100 successfully.
